Spicy Mango Habenero Chicken Kabobs
Who knew that sweet mango paired so well with spicy habanero peppers? Well, let me tell you, it’s pure perfection. After making them one time you will want to make them again!
HOW TO ASSEMBLE THE HABANERO CHICKEN KABOBS
It’s easily assembled using simple ingredients. You can use any kind of veggies to place in between the chicken. I used colorful peppers and purple onions. You can custom it to your preference.
If you are on a low carb diet, you can add healthy veggies like Zucchini, Yellow Squash, Mushrooms, and Eggplants.
Summer is over but that doesn’t mean grilling is over right? You can grill these Spicy Mango Habanero Chicken Kabobs outside on a grill, which I prefer if the weather is nice, or use an indoor grill. I use an old indoor De’ Longhi grill but you can use any kind of indoor grills you like. T-fal has some good grills and I have seen a couple of good ones at Walmart.
A quick suggestion, if you use the oven to bake them, place the tray on the second bottom rack and broil instead of baking.
Please note that this recipe is very spicy! If you have kids that don’t eat spicy food, you might want to prep something else for them that day. Here is a delicious One Pot Whole Wheat Mac N’ Cheese recipe they may like.
